Robert Bauval was born in Alexandria, Egypt in 1948. His discoveries and theories have been the subject of dozens of TV documentaries. Thomas Brophy has a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Colorado and was a staff research scientist at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics, Boulder.
Imhotep the African is an archaeological l detective story.
Bauval and Brophy make the case that the legendary Egyptian
physician, architect, and astronomer Imhotep was not only an
historical figure but that he was black. This remarkable book
challenges many assumptions about life along the Nile, revealing a
worldview and technology that was more sophisticated than anything
previously imagined. --Stanley Krippner, PhD, co-author of

Bauval and Brophy have once again brought their keen intellectual and scientific skills to bear by examining an aspect of ancient history that contemporary Egyptologists have been either too afraid or too unwilling to investigate. Imhotep the African is the perfect sequel to Black Genesis, for it presents incontrovertible truths that will either be accepted on their merits or ignored for fear of exposing a house of lies built upon foundations of historical falsehoods. It is evident to many of their colleagues that Robert Bauval and Thomas Brophy are the dynamic duo of independent Egyptologists. They are to be commended for their scholarship and their dogged determination to present an honest assessment of historical events--even if it flies in the face of conventional dogma. --Anthony T. Browder, author and independent Egyptologist-- "Reviews"
